The standpoint of Russian President Vladimir Putin about Georgia and Ukraine remains unchanged – President of Estonia Kersti Kaljulaid made this statement in an interview with Estonian radio when talking about the details of the meeting with Russian President.
“Of course, I did not have any other expectation,” President of Estonia said. She added that Estonia was a European country and it was talking to neighbors regardless it was pleasure or not and that the unity of Europe would be ruined if she had not raised the issue of Georgia and Ukraine.
President of Estonia Kersti Kaljulaid and Russian President Vladimir Putin talked about Georgia during the meeting in the Kremlin last week.
“Estonia is a member of the European Union and, of course, it fully supports European mechanism of sanctions and territorial integrity of Georgia and Ukraine,” Kersti Kaljulaid told Russian Kommersant in the interview.
When asked what the two presidents had considered about Georgia and Ukraine, President of Estonia said that territorial conflicts and the issue of IDPs were considered. “Even though we have different viewpoints, talks are necessary. I did not expect that we reached a consensus,” Kaljulaid said.
